The Monotypes of Louis Schanker

Most are approximately 9 X12 in. on fine rice paper. Many are signed and dated 1948.
Several are stamped Pinocoteca, New York


       A monotype is a single print pulled from a 
       glass or metal plate on which ink or paint has   
       been applied. The image can be transferred 
       to paper by hand rubbing or with a press. A 
       monotype remains one of a kind because it 
       contains no repeatable matrix in the image
       from which a perfect second impression 
       can be made.
